"The Long Bitter Trail" opens up a critical but neglected episode in the story of American expansionism. "Indian Removal" was more than a disgraceful footnote to 19th century history, it exposed critical contradictions in American democratic values which have yet to be resolved. (From review by Harry Watson, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill)

A.F.C. Wallace's The Long, Bitter Trail not only provides us with a new perspective on Andrew Jackson's Indian policies, but traces how the Five Civilized Tribes and other Indian groups adjusted over time. Some, like the Cherokees, made a remarkable comeback. But most important of all, Wallace traces the persistence of certain of Jackson's Indian policies down tot he present. This informative, insightful, and sobering study deserves the attention of all who would understand American Indian policy, not just in Jackson's period, but in our own.
